Case-Shiller Tuesday: Slight gains in home values across the nation

Home prices here and across the country rose slightly from May to June, according to the latest Case-Shiller home price indices published by Standard & Poor’s. Condo values and overall home values both rose in the Chicago market, even when seasonal adjustments were taken into account. Slowly but surely, the year-over-year price gaps in the local and national market are closing, but there’s a long way to go before homes reach the peak values found in 2006 and 2007.

Listed below are the changes in home value from May to June, as well as changes from March to June and June ’08 to June ’09 (with seasonally adjusted values in parentheses):
